BIOGRAPHY

Catt Landa is a self-taught French painter and tattoo artist.

She was born in Palaiseau in 1981, of Portuguese and Caribbean origin, she grew up in Les Ulis.

Passionate about Art, she begins by reproducing the heroes of her childhood. At the age of 10, she learns painting, but preferring direct contact with the medium, she decides to develop her artistic abilities by working with pencils, pastels, charcoal and sanguine.

After a Scientific Bachelor's degree, she studied medicine at the University of Orsay. She took drama lessons at the Franco-American school FACT in Paris, then English at the University Paris-Sorbonne, and finally returns to her first love, the drawing ...

Hyperrealism is the movement that touches her the most, and in 2012 she picks up her brushes and studies the techniques of the masters of the Renaissance.

She exhibited her first paintings in France in February 2013 (Robert Hossein Center in Nozay) and sells almost all of her works on the day of the opening.

Since 2014, she has specialized in biographical portraits and the adaptation of novels.

In 2018 she imagines a new concept of painting, painting food, monuments, objects, characters or animals, mixing realism, geometric forms and translations in several languages, thus forming universal collections. 

Her brand CATT LANDA COLLECTION was born.

THE BAUDELAIRE PROJECT

Charles Baudelaire is a 19th century French poet.

The creations of this project honor some of his poems and lead Catt Landa to paint women (inspired by Baudelaire's muses) and naked men, accompanied by extracts or entire poems taken from the Flowers of Evil.

BIOGRAPHICAL PORTRAITS

It was in 2012 that Catt Landa began to study hyperrealism and the techniques of Renaissance masters.

After several years of reflection on how to link her passions for tattooing, painting and history, her artistic approach is more precise.

Her idea is to highlight the history, life, actions of the subjects she paints, like a pictorial biography. 

Each painting represents several months of work and research.

ADAPTATION OF NOVELS

Catt Landa adapts the books by the same process as the pictorial biographies.

His idea is to tell a summary of the novel by highlighting the characters, which defines them as well as to trace the storyline by painting tattoos and precise details.

Adaptation of The Little Prince
